Good news for those planning a trip to the union territory of Lakshadweep. The Bangaram Island Resort, which was shut down for the past few years, has reopened, according to an official announcement put out by the district administration. Bangaram Island is an uninhabited island that’s a mere 20-minute speed boat ride from Agatti (the airport island). Bangaram is known for its coral reefs, turquoise blue lagoons, silvery beaches and lush green coconut palms. The tourist season in Lakshadweep usually opens from October.
